Beaver Stadium Honors The ‘Iowa Wave’
Penn State’s fans adopted one of Iowa’s most touching traditions during the Nittany Lions’ clash with the Hawkeyes at Beaver Stadium.
Thousands of Penn State fans brought the “Iowa Wave” to Beaver Stadium during the Nittany Lions’ dramatic win over the Hawkeyes.
The tradition is simple: Every fan in Kinnick Stadium turns their attention away from the field and to the nearby University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital to wave at children watching from the windows during every Hawkeye home game.
The wave began two years ago when a fan on social media suggested the team should do something to cheer up the neighboring children at the hospital, and it’s quickly become a beloved tradition.
Through bringing the Hawkeyes’ greatest tradition to Happy Valley, Penn State has once again exemplified what it means to be the greatest fanbase in college football.
